Product Details

Death is an uncomfortable reality and something we all have to face. In her book Befriending Death Michelle O'Rourke tackles the subject using the thoughts and teachings of Henri Nouwen and her own personal experiences. Subtitled Henri Nouwen and a Spirituality of Dying, in the book the author looks at the teachings and writings of Nouwen to try to bring the reader to a better understanding of what death is and how it is the fulfillment of life and not the end. Everyone thinks about death and Befriending Death presents a compassionate and encouraging way to look at death as a fulfillment of life as seen through the thoughts, ideas and life of Henri Nouwen.

Befriending Death also gives suggestions on how to give care to one who is dying, to the one who is the caregiver and to the one who is grieving which the author has experienced through her occupation as a nurse and which we all will probably experience at sometime in our lives. Befriending Death tries to help make the end of this life's journey less frightening and more spiritual through the encouraging thoughts, writings and experiences of a great spiritual man, Henri Nouwen.
